    nz cup november

    With the large stake many Australian based horses are looking at The NZ Cup these include Chicago Bull, Alellua, Better mach and others .These often do not turn up but with no standout this year many may wish to start. It could even mean verygood horses are denied a start. My question where the priority for a start will lie. I realise it is a good problem to have but even paying a late entry (ifeel) should not guarantee a start. Or should it .

    Go the mighty Lazarus. In USA they take thehorses for courses theory to new levels so a return to Hoosier their big chance. Laz paying 9 to 5 on (1.80) and Mcwicked 2 to 1 (2.00 ) If no Whittakers this week letshope they find a nice paddock for him for a week or 2. many horses are raced every week over there until they runout of steam... would make even Geoff Martin sit up and take notice !!! (trains Danke over 50 starts every season )

    canterbury Harness Awards

    Sorry JJ (must take my happy pills !!) but the word bizarre is in the list so if the claytons canterbury awards 2018 were issued honestly the driver could have been awarded to someone down the list say an Ivan Schwamm for longevity. (now 85)

    Thanks Spike it is a joke but it is not funny when many people with their lives in Harness racing are considered guilty before even a hint of a trial. HRNZ with their lack of support may 1 day drive past the chinese beef farm that used to be a harness racing establishment at Rolleston and thinkof the good old days. and wonder why all the top canterbury trainers only come across the tasman to buy the top lots at yearling sales and win our big races.

    And your point is ? Even M.H. would concede a stable winning 27 group 1s in a season is world class and have had asensational year eg nz cup,ak cup,interdom,5 jewelsmessenger,oaks ,sire stakes,oaks. hunter cup. the list would go on and on. As mentioned in this post the truth is this year to avoid embarassemet some trainers and drivers are too successful so must not get an award. (over achievers mentioned and fits nicely) Please dont insult the collective intelligence of this view .

    looks like they will be in the 8000 to 9000 range for first meeting of the season. some with the first win 1500 bonus.. oct 30 and 1 nov first meeting.after that will depend on sponsors.

    Lazarus

    Thanks Iraklis, for updates.One point that I thnk maybe need clarification is the comments last week that Laz was on Lasix. This appears to be false. There are 2 lists where meds appear issued by the track and a sep one by the national body .In one last week it had the L alongside but the other did not . USTA have not got him listed so i assume he is not nor has he been on Lasix. ? The Wonder from Down Under....maybe lets hope on saturday (1.50pm)no more wondering.

    yes and no gimme from 6 with mcwicked inside. He will need another 1.48 I pick to win andfrom last Sunday travel and race pretty hard task.like running a miracle mile every week ! To protect their millions invested they should get someone over from NZ real quick.(even if it costs $50 k.(who knows him and not doing much at the moment}
